One of 3 appetizers we made for a party of 12 people. Made 2 packages (approx 70 smokies), and guests were disappointed there weren't more. Had a hard time finding smokies at grocery stores (New Jersey), but found 4 different varieties in grocery section at Walmart (in Pennsylvania). CHEDDAR SMOKIES were far tastier than regular beef variety. Used hickory flavored bacon, cut into thirds. Poured half a bag of dark brown sugar into a baking dish and dredged each piece of bacon, making sure to press generous amounts of brown sugar onto each side before wrapping around smoky. Used wooden bbq skewers, leaving just enough space between smokies to ensure they didn't stick together. Placed in long glass baking dish, then generously sprinkled more brown sugar on top before covering dish in plastic wrap and refrigerating overnight. Recoated smokies in brown sugar sauce from baking dish, then placed skewers on broiler pan on center rack in oven at 375 degrees, approx 12 min on each side. Removed from skewers and placed toothpicks for easy handling by guests. As a dipping sauce, quadrupled topping from Easy Meatloaf recipe from this site: 1 1/3C Catsup, 1/2C deli mustard, a couple of tablespoons brown sugar. Nothing like the aroma of bacon to make your guests ravenous when they step foot into your house. Men, especially, couldn't wait to duplicate recipe.
